  • I know the academy is a long ways away for me but I was wondering, during the week what is the extent of a recruit's contact with the outside world? Are you allowed to have cell phones in the dorm to make calls at night? Are you allowed to bring a labtop and have internet access? I know on the weekends you are free to go so to speak.

      No cell phones and no laptops. It i up at around 5:00am and lights out at 10:00pm. They keep you occupied throughout those times.


      We were allowed use cell pones at designated times after a few weeks, but it was limited. I think the cell phone policy has been changing from class to class, but you are not allowed to use them at night in your dorms.

                    Oh how I dislike guys who can go 2-3 days without shaving... I was accused more than once of not shaving when I was in the service. Shaving when you get up and then sweating to death at PT is always nice.

                    • I have to shave at least once a day, sometimes twice if I'm going somewhere at night.

                              • Considering even if I were to pass the remainder of the steps in the processing, I would be borderline for getting into the last academy off the 2004 list.

                                Would it be advantageous for me to sign up for the ’08 exam sooner rather than later? The recruiter recommended that for those of us already in the process that don’t have an academy invite in our hands by say August, to sign up for the next written exam.

                                Does your signup date play any role in the ranking process if you were to score the same as some others?
